Ocean Falls GS, Security and Reconstruction Evaluation

This hydropower facility dating back to 1918 presented specific challenges due to its location in a remote site within a coastal mountain range.

CIMA+ carried out the detailed engineering and prepared the drawings and specifications for the reconstruction of the intake gates and penstock, in the framework of a power upgrade project. Furthermore, CIMA+ conducted a statutory inspection of the concrete gravity dam, as well as a safety assessment, including flood flow determination and dam break analysis.
